             Khara Puttu,my grandpa's favorite...this khara puttu is simple ...seasoning the rice flour and steaming like regular puttu .the recipe follows:

  1. Rice Flour/Idiyappam Flour      1 cup
  2. Salt    to taste
  3. Hot water    1/2 cup or more.
To temper
  1. Oil    1 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds    1/2 tsp
  3. Urad dal    1 and 1/2 tsp
  4. dry red chilli   1 no.(broken into small pieces)
  5. Curry leaves     few(cut into small pieces)
  6. Hing    a pinch
  • Take a wide vessel,add rice flour and salt mix well.
  • Heat a pan,add oil and add tthe tempering ingredients one byone and fry till urad dal turns golden brown and add it to the rice flour and mix it well.
  • Now add water little by little and mix well and make it to a stiff dough.(don't add more water ..dough should be stiff n thick).
  • Then to the same seasoned pan ,add a tsp oil and fry the dough for 1 minute.(this will absorb the excess moisture from the dough).
  • After that,transfer to the vessel and crumble it with your hands .
  • Now take a wet cloth,keep the rice mixture on it and cover it lightly .
  • Plcae the cloth on the idly plate and steam it for 15 minutes.
